Homemade Flour Tortillas
I have been making tortillas for about 30 years my mother 50 years her mother for 70 years. I just wanted to say that you can use vegetable oil we do now in the past lard. Our tortillas are fluffy and melt in your mouth.

Menudo Rojo (Red Menudo)
I make menudo and the pigs feet were not in your recipe. The tripe that we use is the honeycomb cost a little more but is more tasty and tender. Also have the butcher cut the pigs feet two or three of them into 4 pieces. Pigs feet add to the flavor. I use the powder chili. California Chili cause the New Mexico is too hot spicy. Also add "menudo Mix" it has all the spices you need in it sold in the Mexican spice section to the menudo then you only need to add salt and the red chili powder all our relatives always ask me to make menudo when they are coming to will love it!
